Suffern, New York - We are proud to bring you a new feature that was highly request for the Tikun iPhone/iPad app. The feature allows you to download audio recordings of a professional Bar Mitzvah teacher reading from the Torah.
By listening to the reading of the Bar Mitzvah teacher, you can train yourself by ear to learn the torah yourself. This makes for an excellent supplement for your Bar Mitzvah training or for a refresher on reading new parshas or old ones.
Note: The available recording are currently in Ashkenaz format and not available for all Parshas as of yet but we will be adding more as we go. They can be purchased book (parsha) by book for $4.99 each.
The Ashkenaz reading is provided by Ira Slotnick, who is available for hire as a Bar Mitzvah teacher.
